Unity , in the garden





Not so lovely in the garden today , more rain , so glad we are going to Minorca next week . Our country would be so much better with a warmer climate .
In my card the sun is always shining and the blossom is beautiful on the branches .
I've used Tattered lace Unity die (don't know why it's called that ) , coloured with promarkers and highlighted with a white gel pen and a black micron pen .  The sky background is a TL download . The blossom die was part of the shabby offset collection . The lovely die is from a set by first edition called modern sentiments . The grass is a lawn fawn die . The little butterfly also TL. The wooden fence effect paper , a £3 12x12 paper pad from the Works called Rustic Atmosphere .
